“Nice.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Spent our xmas day and boxing day at St.Raphael hotel with our family. Nice hotel overall, but the rooms require a renovation including the lobby area too. Xmas dinner was superb! a great variety buffet, excellently cooked and presented. Festive environment and the desert buffet was fantastic! Breakfast fantastic too. Staff very kind and helpful. It could have held more events though as it was Christmas time.

St Raphael provides exactly what a luxurious and comfortable stay means. The renovated hotel inspires you the classical atmosphere, you feel that these people know what they're doing. The room we took had a beautiful sea and sunset view and the welcome wine and fruits were a delight. Breakfast is huge, you will find anything your appetite demands. We were able to drive around, but often bus routes allow for any time visits to the city centre.
The Spa was splendid as well. Exquisite service and excellent swimming pool, jacuzzi, steam baths and sauna. Would not have asked for more. Next time, I will give a try to their massage services as well!

Room Tip: Ask for a view to the sea if you like the view, but if you're staying during summertime, do ask...

We stayed at the St Raphael Hotel for a week starting 4 March 2013. Before booking this holiday we read the reviews and believe me we were not disappointed. It is ideally situated just outside Limassol, about a 20 minute bus ride, set in excellent well kept grounds with the beach just beyond. Our accommodation was very good, a decent size bedroom with plenty of closet space and a very well set up bathroom. The staff kept the room spotless and were unobtrusive going about their duties. We booked on a half-board basis and frankly the food was as good as I have ever encounted on any similar holiday, with five or six options every evening, something to please everyone. All the staff were very helpful, nothing was too much trouble, and I would like to make special mention of Nicos at his front door desk, Kristina at reception, and Sasha the Bar and Restuarant Manager who was always available and clearly took the welfare of his guests as his top priority. This is clearly a successful operation, and it is so because the management have appointed superior staff who simply know how to work hard at getting it right for their clients.
A great holiday, thanks for a wonderful experience which we shall long remember.

From the moment we arrived we enjoyed 5 Star treatment. Nicos quietly but efficiently took our luggage to the rooms. Well appointed with views of the Sea & Marina.Daily our room was cleaned & all Tea/ Coffee replenished. At reception smiling Kristina dealt with all our questions & happily extended the use of our room on the final day with no extra cost. The food was some of the best we have enjoyed at an off season all inclusive. This was because as explained by Sasha the staff in the kitchen had long service and knew how to produce both Local & International dishes. Lovely grounds / Pools & Spa provided the finishing touches. To sum up this Hotel Sasha came to our Party as we where leaving to thank us all for coming & wishing us a safe journey. He didn't have to he just did. thanks for the lovely memories TIm & Agnes Wood.

Dear Reviewer, thank you for sharing your experience but your review leaves us a little confused. Please can you email us directly and mark your e-mail for the attention of Farah Shammas with some further comments. Overall I see that you liked the hotel but it seems you expected more from the service and hence despite all being well you gave us a 2 out 5 star rating? Please do send us some more details…. Kind regards,

Stayed aat this hotel last October. Staff very helpful, although we did have some trouble in getting our daily room supplies of coffee, cups and glasses replaced. The bedroom was a good size but spoilt by the small balcony - barely enough room for the two chairs and table. The food was o.k. but wouldn't rate it 5 star. Usual problem of people reserving beach beds, but with plenty available I dont know why they bother to do this. We spent our third week as "bed and breakfast" which gave us the opportunity of dining outside the hotel which you need after 2 weeks.

Room Tip: ask for a room overlooking the harbour, else you get one overlooking the car park.

Dear Reviewer, thank you very much for your review and we are happy to see that you were able to take advantage of some very special packages out on the market. If you would like to have a bigger balcony, we can suggest our marina view rooms or even our executive rooms which have much larger balconies. These do come at a supplement but are worth it if you want to make use of the balcony. As for rooms overlooking the car park, we actually only have 12 standard family inland view rooms which are extremely popular, accommodating families of 5 people, and our sea view rooms all have balconies but are situated on the sides of the hotel with smaller balconies. Our food is always highly praised, so I am confused why you have rated this below 5 star. We thank you for letting us be of service to you and would be most happy to welcome you back. Kind regards,
